Immediately after coravin-ing (is that a verb?) a glass...There is no question this an aged left bank BDX. On the nose, a dusty leather chair in a cedar library. In the mouth, very evolved heavily-Cab Sav, dark fruit, iron, dried flowers and leather. No tannins, not much acid. Lacking much of a mid palate. Medium finish. Not at all a bad example of a Margaux, but maybe slightly over the hill. Still very enjoyable. — 13 hours ago
A 2008 tonight! It was drinking really well. I did Coravin it! — 2 days ago
Better than the first time coravin now that the cork is popped. Bright cherry with a lot of earthy overtones and solid tannin. — 5 days ago
Off Coravin. Pale yellow in color lightly scented with pineapple, lemon and white flowers. Lemon, almond, and wet stone. Light oak balances the acidity and has a smooth finish. Better as it warms up. Cheers! #domainecoffinetduvernay #montrachet #whiteburgundy — a month ago
Stole a glass via Coravin and this one does not seem ready. Definitely getting the blue fruit flavors but little glycerin and hot taste that needs to air out. Huge wine. Will try again down the road — a month ago
Well that is interesting.......
Having drunk this bottle using Coravin in 5 months. Normally I would not take that much time but as the first few glasses were rather disappointing to me I was not in a hurry.
So here we are, 5 months after the first we are enjoying the final 2 glasses. Nose full of raisins and fig. Some mint. In the mouth there is more balance. More roundness.....
Sweet and acidity in balance.
Having said all of this, I still will not open a bottle again the next two years and now it scores 90/100..... — 2 days ago
Coravin pour with 1.5 hrs of air. Hot damn this cab franc is outstanding. This is not a “taste like a cab” cab franc. This has true cab franc characteristics but is elevated by the beckstoffer farming. This is my favorite vintage of this dr crane cab franc and would love to try this against the macauley to kalon cab franc. 97+. — 19 days ago
I didn’t find it particularly interesting when I tried it with Coravin, but that’s because it’s a full bodied wine with high tannins that should be decanted. Today I’m tasting it with a stewed roast and it is delicious. Deep ruby color = #alicantebouschet #syrah and #touriganacional warm climate #alentejo medium+ aromas with ripe red cherries, ripe raspberry and red plums. Balsamic touches and on the palate it’s dry with medium acidity and medium+ ripe tannins. Medium+ finish. — a month ago
